There is NO dam on the Wisconsin River in Sauk City. It's in Prairie du Sac, the northern "suburb" of Sauk City.

Coming in on Hwy 12 from the south, turn right (north) at the interchange at the end of the Wisconsin River bridge onto Water St.  Continue north on Water St. until you come to a 4-way stop at Hwy. 60 and Prairie St. in Prairie du Sac.  Continue north (straight ahead) until you come to VFW Drive.  That takes you to the nearest (and best) boat launch below the dam on the Wisconsin River that forms Lake Wisconsin.

The 2 villages (with separate governments, maintenance depts., etc.) are the result of a religious dispute arising in the 1800's.

The LakeLinks site "Wisconsin River Prairie du Sac" is where most of the posting about fishing below the dam is done.....

I was thinking the same thing NiteMite.

This is the only one I know of in the area.

 Probably a good idea to let this thread sink to the bottom again so it doesn't confuse anymore newbies since there's no such thing as a Sauk City Dam.

The dam is about a mile upstream from the hwy 60 bridge. Look it up on google maps and you should be able to see it pretty easily. Its pretty big you won't miss it.

I have fished the Sauk City area quite a bit, but have never seen a dam. Was the old dam torn down? Or is the railroad bridge what you mean by the  dam? Or maybe the rt. 12 bridge where the old dam was? I do know where the old 12 roadbed is, but that's not a dam. It's more curiosity than anything. Plenty of fish in the river. Thanks you

I was out by the dam yesterday and caught 5 walleyes between 2 and 530 PM none that were legal. Positioning boat and fishing was difficult up by dam due to wind, current and waves from flood gates that were open. Ill be back out once the river drops some more.

Hey guys I wanted to head up for a couple of hours before work tonight. I'm a shore fisherman and I'm just wondering if anyone knows where I could find some action from shore. Would like to catch bass or catfish but I'm good with any species. Thanks.

Hey guys do we have open water near the dam and is it possible to get a boat near the spill ? Launching at the VFW ?

Any information is much appreciated.
